Grabby Mouse : Ergonomic Mouse Design That Prevents Wrist Pain

Grabby Mouse was born out of the idea to design an ergonomic mouse that eliminates aching and stiff wrist after using it for long period of time. According to Aaron Cheng there are 2 main design flaws in our current mouse technology: the lack of resting place for most fingers and painful abrasion between your wrist and table surface from day to day use. This new mouse design tries to address those issues by creating more comfortable form. It’s been designed based on human hand movements, it changes the mouse into more natural extension of your hand instead of just another gadget.

The rules that dictate how the output is constricted can be manipulated through function buttons that alter the pitch, scale and instrument used. Additionally, there are play and record buttons which allow the user to capture and loop keystroke patterns as well as a freezeframe button that captures and holds a given frame of video so the user can lock-in a palette of their choosing. The device runs using an Ard
